🔥 BREAKING NEWS: Shiseido acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand, Drunk Elephant for $845 Million! 🐘
.
What’s the current situation with Drunk Elephant’s cruelty-free status?👇🏻
.
Shiseido is NOT a cruelty-free corporation, they DO test on animals when required by law and the brand, as well as, some of their subsidiary brands (like NARS) are sold in mainland China and are required by law to test on animals.
.
Shiseido does own two cruelty-free brands, bareMinerals and BUXOM.
.
So.. will Drunk Elephant remain Cruelty-Free?
. 
YES! According to Drunk Elephant, they'll remain cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified!!! ✨🙌🏻✨Swipe 👈🏻 to read their response when asked about their cruelty-free standing after the announcement.
.
TL;DR - Shiseido (a non-cruelty-free corporation) acquires Drunk Elephant but they’ll remain committed to being cruelty-free. Drunk Elephant is not sold in-stores in China and has no plans to.

Is Lancome Cruelty-Free in 2019? | Does Lancome Test on Animals?

Is Lancome Cruelty-Free?

Lancome is not cruelty-free in 2019; Lancome products are sold in-stores in mainland China where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics.

It should also be noted that Lancome is owned by L’Oreal, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals when required by law in 2019.

Lancome’s Animal Testing Statement

On Lancome’s website, they claim that they do not conduct animal testing on their products or ingredients or ask others to test on their behalf, except when required by law. As noted earlier, Lancome is owned by L’Oreal. The animal testing statement and policy I found on Lancome’s website is the exact same as L’Oreal’s.

The disclaimer that Lancome and L’Oreal doesn’t test on animals “except when required by law” is concerning.

This implies that Lancome products are sold in mainland China where all imported cosmetics is required by law to be tested on animals.

In my research, I found proof that Lancome products are currently sold in-stores in mainland China and therefore, Lancome must consent to have their products or ingredients tested on animals by Chinese officials in order to import and sell their products in mainland China.

Lancome Sold in China

To prove that Lancôme products are in fact sold in stores in Mainland China, I used Lancôme’s store locator feature on their website to find several store listings in mainland China that carry Lancôme products.

Unfortunately because of Lancome’s decision to sell their products in China and those products are required to be tested on animals, we do not consider Lancome to be cruelty-free.

Cruelty-Free Alternatives

    I posted some comments on Lancome Facebook page and they responded:

    Lancôme, a brand of L’Oreal, does not test any of its products or ingredients on animals and has been at the forefront of alternative methods for over 30 yrs. For more information, please click here:

    Can I trust it?

      “Thanks to this, since 2014, certain products manufactured and sold in China like shampoo, body wash or certain make-up are no longer tested on animals.”

      It says that in the last sentence of their paragraph. The entire statement sounds wishy washy, to be honest, so in all I don’t trust it at all.

    I do believe L’Oreal no longer tests on animals but they need to go much further and quit selling in China where they do animal test L’Oreal and affiliate products for sale there. I’m sure there would be an uprising if L’Oreal and Estée Lauder quit selling there. Seriously. I worked for years representing Lancome and visitors from other countries, European and Asian countries, including China, would buy a lot of products to bring home. It was probably mainly for the price but nonetheless I had the impression especially the skin care products were very popular.

    Have you read this?

    I’m trying to become an official activist of cruelty free products and so through my research I came across this article. Can I trust it?

      I wouldn’t trust it. Especially since loreal has a very long history with animal testing that has nothing to do with China’s laws.
